New real project

Be careful, this will not be the Gotham Central series for a while mentioned and stalled since (canceled?), But a new project in development since last September. The series will feature the rise of the "villain" in the criminal underworld of Gotham City. Joe Barton (Encounter) will be the showrunner and Lauren LeFranc (Chuck, Marvel: Agents of SHIELD, Impulse, Hemlock Grove) has been tasked with writing the script. To be continued.
